Join Lisette Kielson at the Bloomington Center for the Performing Arts in Bloomington, Illinois, for an all day workshop called “It was a Dark and Stormy Night: Programme Music from the Baroque to the Present.”
Lisette is an old friend of the Chicago chapter, a former president of the American Recorder Society, and a regular performer and teacher in the Chicago area. She directed the Chicago chapter recorder workshop in April of 2009, and anyone who has enjoyed Lisette’s company has found her to be a skilled and delightful teacher and companion.

We need as many recorder players as we can find. Members from the West Suburban Early Music Society are welcome, and any other recorder players who want to take part.

The Early Music Festival returns May 31-June 2 this year at the University of Wisconsin Whitewater. We provide the brochure and class schedules below. Recorder players of all levels, gamba players, and singers have been gathering for a weekend of classes, jamming, dance, and performing every June since 1960. We will also have vendors on site providing music, instruments, musical supplies, and repairs.
The first event is 7 PM Friday night May 31, and the weekend concludes with a Sunday afternoon concert. The University of Wisconsin Whitewater is about 45 miles southeast of Madison and about 150 miles from Chicago.
